I’m totally down for a pretty, black dress; especially when there is lace on it! But black dresses can easily fade into the background so sometimes it can be fun to add some pop to them. Plus, having such a simple backdrop makes it easy to add fun accessories and if you struggle with putting outfits together, an LBD is the perfect place to start. Please know that your clutch and shoes do NOT have to match and in fact it can be too “matchy matchy.” My clutch was more of a sage green color but it photographed differently. If you don’t love color, you can do a metallic or textured clutch to make your look more interesting. Dress up your LBD in a way that’s fun for you!
